OK, let me set the stage. I'm an older guy who four years ago was bombing around on my mountainbike doing 12 to 20 miles on trails everyday. I had a major wreck that required surgery to my chest and abdomen to repair. I did pretty good and was adapt at moving my weight around the cockpit but wasn't that skilled doing manuals or more advanced moves.
I just purchased another bike, this time a 29'r and would like some advice on perfecting some of the skills that I lacked in the past: manuals, bunny hops, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
